ASUS has confirmed that it will be releasing a new collection of gaming components and peripherals inspired by Neon Genesis Evangelion’s EVA-02 and Asuka Langley characters. According to the new microsite for the collection, there are 11 products in total, including a new ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090 EVA-02 Edition graphics card that features a red shroud based on the color scheme of the EVA-02 and Asuka’s plugsuit. There’s also a ROG Maximus Z790 Hero EVA-02 Edition motherboard that supports 13th Gen Intel Core and 12th Gen Intel Core, Pentium Gold, and Celeron Processors.

This special version of the feature-packed ROG Maximus Z790 Hero arrives with EVA-02’s signature red and orange theme, with traces of green. The backplate design comes with EVA-02 Beast Mode and Evangelion patterns, supporting this motherboard’s immense power and control, as it takes 13th Gen Intel Core processors and DDR5 memory kit to the next level. And an A.T. Field design around the CPU socket and Polymo lighting on the I/O cover switches between Asuka and regular EVA-02 as another artistic flourish.
